The museum offers an anthological itinerary of the works of Zauli, one of the most important ceramic sculptors of the twentieth-century, from the early 50’s to the 90’s. A visit to the Carlo Zauli Museum gives the visitor a chance of getting to know Faenza and to journey through the history of ceramics.

Explaination: The artist Carlo Zauli has been internationally famous ever since the end of the 50’s and his works can be found in thirty six museums around the world. The museum was set up inside the workshop where Zauli produced his works and which was, in the second half of the twentieth century, an attraction for other leading artists. The museum reveals to the visitor the studies of the artist who, from being a potter, became a sculptor without ever neglecting his origins. The itinerary is enriched with a visit to the rooms of the study-workshop: from the clay basement to the enamel room, from the oven room to the relief room, where the earth mounds turned into sculpture.
